Maine’s online vehicle registration renewal program, Rapid Renewal, processed its 1,000,000th registration renewal on June 27, 2014. The service, provided by the Department of the Secretary of State, through its partnership with InforME, allows Maine citizens to renew their vehicle registration from the comfort of their living room, at work or even on the beach. The service has gained national acclaim and has been enthusiastically embraced by Mainers.
“Rapid Renewal began in 2001 with just 10 municipalities as pilots for the program,” stated Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap. “Thirteen years later the service has grown to 182 municipalities, large and small, and processes approximately 115,000 registrations a year. Rapid Renewal has proven itself to be the hallmark of making government services easy for Maine people.”
To celebrate, the 1,000,000th user will get a special recognition from Secretary of State Matt Dunlap to mark this momentous milestone.
The Rapid Renewal service is currently offered by cities and towns from York County to Aroostook County, with populations ranging from Glenwood Plantation's two citizens to more than 64,000 in Portland. Through Rapid Renewal, Maine people are able to quickly and easily renew their vehicle registrations and pay their municipal excise taxes online, 24/7 from any computer or mobile device
Rapid Renewal is just part of the popular suite of electronic services available through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Other online services include:
- Duplicate registrations
